With the Steelers’ season ending, the rumors will begin heating up.

It has been speculated for the last few weeks that Mike Tomlin will weigh his options and make a decision on his future with the Steelers this off-season. Tomlin has been the Steelers’ head coach since 2007, and is now the longest tenured head coach in the NFL after Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots parted ways.

Cam Heyward was asked about Tomlin and the possibility of a life without him as the Steelers’ head coach, to which he didn’t mince words.

“I don’t want to play for any other coach,” Heyward said.

Heyward has been with the Steelers since being drafted in 2011. He is the longest tenured member of the team, and has long been a supporter of his head coach.

In an off-season where Bill Belichick, Pete Carroll, and Mike Vrabel have all been fired and/or moved on from their respective head coaching positions, anything is possible to happen in Pittsburgh.
